Netarts Bay OR phenomena - Sand Sculptures

Netarts Bay and Oceanside beach, Oregon…receding tides and excessive winds create the most unusual, other-worldly sand formations looking like ice cream cones, space ships, pyramids, witches hats, etc. This series of photos were taken in Sept. and Oct. 2013 when shapes were particularly astonishing. Post note in Nov. 2015 – I have returned many times since, at different times of the year, and have never seen them quite so spectacular. I now know them to be extremely rare. The phenomenon seems to be restricted to within a 1/4 mile area near the town of Netarts.
